A Minecraft fan's epic frame-by-frame re-creation of promo video for Notch's new mansion

·Homes Editor

You knew it couldn't be long.

The other day, we brought you news that Minecraft creator Notch (born Markus Persson) had outbid Beyonce and Jay-Z for Los Angeles' most extreme house, at 1181 Hillcrest Road in Beverly Hills' Trousdale Estates neighborhood.

It was practically a given that the Steves of this world would soon be hard at work replicating Notch's $70 million mansion in Minecraft.

What we didn't anticipate was this lovingly designed frame-by-frame reproduction of the mansion's promotional video. It's missing a few details -- the babes, the James Dean motorcycle replica, the Dom Perignon bottles -- but we think you'll agree that it's impressively meticulous nonetheless. Thanks to a shaders mod, you'll even see water reflections (and catch glimpses of your tour conductor Steve).

The small inset video is the real promotional video; the large frame is, of course, the Minecraft re-creation.

It was accomplished by Dan Bovey of boveybrawlers on Planet Minecraft, who promises that a download will be coming soon.

In case you missed it, here's our slideshow of Notch's new $70 million mansion (the most ever paid in Beverly Hills):
